(S) Salvador Andrade Gutierrez Ventura 29
On September 13, 2018, The Ventura County Sheriff’s Gang Unit concluded a one month investigation into a documented criminal street gang member, Salvador Gutierrez, for a felon in possession of a firearm.  At the time of the investigation, Gutierrez was out of custody after posting bail for a previous firearm related arrest.  The previous arrest was unrelated to the current investigation.
On September 13, 2018, Gutierrez was contacted by deputies during a routine traffic stop. During the contact, the deputies located a loaded handgun concealed in Gutierrez’ waistband.  In addition to the concealed handgun, Gutierrez was found to be in possession of narcotics.  Gutierrez was arrested and booked into the Pre-Trial Detention Facility for possession of the handgun and narcotics.
Detectives later served a search warrant at Gutierrez’ residence in Ventura and a rented storage location in Oxnard.  During the search, detectives located additional evidence related to illegal firearm activity.
